  • Epigraph: The Dutch have lately made a new discovery of the South Land in latitude of 44 degrees and their longitude 169, the draught whereof is herewith sent. They relate of a gyant-like kinde of people there, very treacherouse, that tore in peeces lymbemeale their merchant, and would have done them further mischiefe, had they not betaken them to their shipps. They make mention also of another sort of people about our stature, very white, and comely, and ruddy, a people gentle and familiar, with whome, by their owne relations, they have had some private conference. We are tould that the Dutch Generall intends to send thither againe and fortifie, having mett with something worth the looking after. — ANONYMOUS (Letter from the India Office archives, 1691)
